We’re proud to announce that our partners, the Seattle CityClub, have unveiled an interactive, online Civic Health Index.
From Seattle CityClub:
We believe that people want and need to have a say in the issues that impact their lives. We know that a healthy democracy and a strong community depend on informed, engaged and powerful citizens. When it comes to civic strength, Greater Seattle is one of the healthiest cities in America. But a more complicated reality lies beneath that headline: There are great disparities in our community’s civic participation corresponding to disparities in education, income, race, and physical health. This website explores greater Seattle’s civic health and offers recommendations for you—for all of us—to improve it.
